While Scott and his prisoner follow Raza and Snatch in their tracks, a terrible bone chilling blizzard starts to freeze the Earth. Scott practically tripped in the snow. The captive somehow stayed up and walking the whole time while handcuffed. Scott looked up at the captive and blinked, "We'll have to stop for awhile. This storm is getting worse." The captive nodded, "Agreed."
They took cover behind some pine trees that blocked most of the storm. It was gonna be a long night for them.
But for Raza it would be longer.
Raza and Snatch were also journeying through the dreadful blizzard. Raza could feel frost bite eating away at her nose. "Will this storm ever stop?" she wondered in her thoughts. Suddenly ahead of them was what could be described as a large box blanketed in the shadows of the night. Snatch observed it with his night vision, "It looks like a log cabin."
Relief filled Raza's heart. A log cabin is perfect! Hopefully whoever owned it would let them stay for one night. "Let's go check it out."
They knocked on the door a few times and after 20 minutes they both decided that the place was deserted. When they tried opening the door they found it to be unlocked. "That's strange." Raza thought, "Who leaves their place's door's unlocked?"
When they strolled inside, they found it to be a quite dark and dusty environment. The few rooms where small and the lights didn't work. They found some candles and matches to help them see the place. Raza's eyes wandered about the room until they came across a piece of paper on a table. There was a whole message lying on that paper. Raza lifted it up and started reading.
"Dear Jerald Scott,
I am quite aware of your schemes and I ask for you to stop this at once. Do you really find pleasure in the murders you commit? I sir do not and I'm asking politely for you to stop. I also ask that you return my daughter Raza to me, if you haven't killed her already. I'll pay to get her back if you want, just please give her back to me!
Signed, Taro Watt"
Raza started shaking uncontrollably, the paper slipped out of her hands and drifted onto the floor. Snatch hurried over to see what was wrong, "Raza! Are you okay?!
Raza didn't reply. She fell onto her knees while still shaking. Then she muttered, "Daughter....Raza......Scott....Taro..... "
"Raza, please tell me what's going on!" Snatch was impatient to find out what was wrong.Raza still didn't answer his pleas. Then she muttered, "My name is Raza Watt....."
"Raza Watt? What a silly name that is." Snatch laughed, Raza didn't find the humor Snatch had discovered.
Raza finally stopped shaking and stood up. She couldn't believe this, Scott had kidnapped her from her father. "Is my father alive? Is my mother?" she thought. Then she tried thinking hard, her head started hurting. "Why don't I remember this?!" she screamed.
"Remember what?" Snatch said out of curiosity.
"My life! I only remember being Scott's apprentice! I can't remember anything before that!" Raza quickly replied in one breath.
"Whoa! Whoa! Calm down!" Snatch said, "Maybe you'll remember in the morning."
Raza nodded, although she knew with all of her heart that she wouldn't remember. She never slept at all that night. Her thoughts were too intense for such a petty thing such as sleep.
She had so many thoughts like "Will I ever remember?" and "Did Scott really kidnap me?".
And then she wondered why that note was in the log cabin in the first place.
